Huawei has added its HarmonyOS system to a high-profile new car—AITO M5. This is a model created by the in-depth cooperation between Huawei and Cyrus. Its electric drive system and smart cockpit are all provided by Huawei, and even the industrial design has the deep participation of the Huawei team. It is only a logo that is Huawei cars.
AITO M5 is equipped with the latest HarmonyOS 2 system and has 128GB storage space. The three screens in the car are a 10.25-inch LCD instrument, a 15.6-inch central control screen and an optional HUD.
If compared with Android and Linux, the biggest difference between the HarmonyOS cockpit is the smooth experience and the convenience brought by the combination of software and hardware. With common operations such as sliding adjustment, opening applications, and voice recognition, this set of Hongmeng OS 2 does not have any lag, which is basically the same as the experience of using a tablet. With the addition of HUAWEI Share and Changlian App, the vehicle can link with Huawei’s smart devices to realize the flow of content and scenes.
Since there is no test drive in the store now, the car only statically experienced the appearance and interior of the vehicle, focusing on the experience of the cockpit system equipped with HarmonyOS 2.
When you get in the car, you can clearly feel that whether it is workmanship or color matching, Wenjie M5 is obviously better than its predecessor, Huawei Smart Selection SF5 (SF5 for short). The AITO M5 uses a double-spoke sports steering wheel, which is similar to the Huawei Smart Selection SF5, but other configurations have been greatly adjusted.
The central control screen is a standard rectangle with a size of 15.6 inches, which is somewhat smaller than the 17.3 inches of the SF5. At the same time, the previous vertical screen design has been changed to a horizontal screen. Although the size is reduced, the resolution is basically unchanged. The screen resolution of WJJ M5 is 1920*1080, which is a 1080P screen.
In front of the driver’s seat, there is also a HUD, which can display the current speed of the vehicle, the following distance to assist driving, and navigation information. From a visual point of view, the HUD display area is not large, but the brightness is very high, and the concise and concise display information is practical enough.
Currently, Huawei has not announced the hardware configuration of the car-machine system, but from the location of the system information, it can be seen that the M5 has 128GB of storage space. Among them, HarmonyOS 2 occupies close to 30GB, and the user’s available space is less than 100GB, which is completely sufficient for the car scene.
With the support of the HarmonyOS 2 system, its built-in applications are also more convenient to use. The M5 has a built-in Petal Maps map. This map uses the data source navigation of Gaode Maps. The zooming in and zooming out and dragging operations of the map are also very smooth. At the same time, Petal Maps maps support seamless circulation. When getting in the car, the mobile phone map navigation can be transferred to the car-machine system; when getting off the car, the navigation can also be transferred back to the mobile phone to continue the navigation.
The car driver paid attention and observed that the sensing equipment of the L2 level autopilot system of the M5 and the SF5 may be the same set, using a single current view camera, 3 millimeter wave radars, 8 ultrasonic radars and 4 surround view cameras.
